Harold Brathwaite E-Resources 

 

1.  www.tumblebookcloud.com

This is a collection of e-fiction, graphic novels, audio books, Shakespeare and other resources.  

 

2.  http://ebooks.infobaselearning.com

This is a collection of approx. 4700 non-fiction books with a search engine.  Although I did find there to be an American bias there are still many good resources.  There is also a citation tool to make bibliographies easier for students.  

 

3.  http://torontostarnie.newspaperdirect.com

This is the education version of the Toronto Star.  It has layout of the real paper and many additional tools including the ability to read on your mobile device, translation tools and a readaloud feature.

 

Passwords are available in the library.
